Edward Weston: When is a rock more than a rock? When it's a photograph.

 Edward Weston, Shells, 1927

The American photographer Edward Weston (1886 -1958) placed his camera at the service of capturing the essence of reality.  Visiting a steel plant in the 1920’s and creating images he believed to be “unpretentious and true to reality,”  he was persuaded that the camera should henceforth be used “for rendering the very substance and quintessence of the thing itself, whether it be polished steel or palpitating flesh.”  He went on to turn his penetrating eye on objects as varied as peppers and cabbages, rocks and seashells, as well as female nudes, moving the camera close up and often removing them from their natural habitat, with the stated aim of transforming their ordinariness into an “image more real and comprehensible than the actual object.” 612 more words
